I really do love Ikea.
And I especially love Ikea's Expedit bookcases.
They're, in a word, rad. Well, I guess that's actually about 1/3 of a word, but you know what I mean.
We recently bought three of the shelving units, one four-squares-wide by two-squares-tall, as linked above. We laid it on its side, I put a few bowls here and platters there and cookbooks over there and topped it with a lamp and some red candlesticks, and it was good. A sideboard with lots of much-needed storage in our neato newly-decorated dining room for a mere $69.99? Gotta dig it.
I think I'll be able to share the dining room soon, by the way. We've got one last thing to do.
